Great Apollo 15 films
Thanks a lot for uploading these films! A great asset for anyone interested in space history. The first film seems to be repeated at the end however.
As far as I understand, the included rover film sequences are indeed from Apollo 15. On Apollo 16 (and 17), the TV camera had a sun shield above the lens, which the TV camera in the rover footage here does not have.

Pretty good transfer
Very good transfer of the 16mm DAC, but if I'm not mistaken, all of Apollo's surface 16mm DAC footage of transfers from one station to the other on the rover were from Apollo 16, not 15. 15's DAC kept jamming repeatedly (and even later during Worden's cislunar EVA), which makes me believe that the transfer footage here is actually from Apollo 16. (And, for what it's worth, the crew of 17 didn't carry their 16mm DAC to the surface, but left it in the LM window the whole time).

Includes a lift-off from the Moon
Whoever posted this. Many thanks. However let me point out to all that this is like 6 or 8 clips pieced together, and I think clip 3 and 4 are horizontally reversed, I am going off the slate at the beginning of each clip as a telltale. It's obvious. There isn't much else in each clip to prove one way or the other. The lift-off from the Moon...too cool. The "pundits" that claim this stuff is faked can eat my shorts, I grew up around this stuff, you're hurting my feelings when you talk like that.
